Grandmother turns author


Farieda Abrahams, a 63-year-old mom of three and granny to six, is about to launch her second book after the success of My Lover, My Country.

Abrahams recent foray into writing was motivated by the words of comedian Soli Philander that “Cape Town’s people have stories to tell but are too lazy to write”.

She has written 4 short plays which were hosted at the Sultan Bahu Drug Rehabilitation Centre in Mitchells Plain where she is also a Social Auxiliary Worker.

The “Storm Within” is a book that touches on what happens in our society.  It tells the story of a young girl, who moved from innocence to a world of drugs, satanism, and prostitution.  The book is based on a true story.

The “Storm Within”  will bring you to tears and most certainly be a good read for young and old.

The book also opens our eyes to what goes on in our society, and yet we are oblivious to the troubles that our youth face on a daily basis.

The title lunches on 4 December 2021 and is most certainly a book you would want on your bookshelf.

Abrahams’ first book My Lover, My Country is being considered for a movie.
